Notes

Soak spices and vanilla bean in vodka for a week, then add to beer after fermentation has completed. Allow to sit for at least one more week before packaging.

For the Brown sugar, you can use 1.5 cups, and for the Molasses, 1/8 cup, if volume is easier to measure. They should be added at 10 minutes before the end of boil (stir to avoid scorching).
